Penicillin-streptomycin solution (100X)
Penicillin/Streptomycin (Pen/Strep) solution is a standard antibiotic mixture used to supplement cell culture media to prevent bacterial contamination. This preventive agent is active against a wide variety of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and shows few negative effects on cultured cells. Penicillin works by inhibiting peptidoglycan synthesis in the Gram-positive bacteria and streptomycin binds to the 30S subunit of Gram-negative bacterial ribosome; this mechanism inhibits protein synthesis.
